Brazil’s Willian: Everything went right for Germany and wrong for us
Willian lamented Brazil's World Cup semi-final defeat to Germany and admitted where everything went wrong for his nation, it all clicked for the European giants.
Luiz Felipe Scolari’s team were thrashed 7-1 at Belo Horizonte and their dream of reaching and winning their home World Cup was diminished in a spectacular opening 45 minutes.
Germany came in at the break 5-0 up and though Willian was introduced midway through the second period, he unsurprisingly couldn’t inspire Brazil to restore any pride.
Goal.com quoted the Chelsea midfielder after the game, he said: "Today is an inexplicable day to all of us.
“It's one of those inexplicable stories of football. Everything went right for Germany and wrong for us.
"Our goal was to make it to the final and go for the title. Unfortunately, we couldn't do it.”
Willian felt the team picked by Scolari was good enough to win, despite missing Thiago Silva and Neymar.
The 25-year-old now insists they have to raise their heads and carry on, he added: “Every player here has quality, all 11 that Felipao put out there have quality.
“Nothing went our way, but now we have to raise our heads and life goes on."
